The Woman Who Dived into the Heart of the World

Sabina Berman

But I have 3 virtues, and they are big ones.
1. I don't know how to lie.
2. I don't fantasize, so things that don't exist don't worry Me or hurt Me.
3. I know that I only know what I know, and that what I don't know - which is a lot more- I am sure I don't know.
And that, like I said, over the long run has given Me a big advantage over standard humans.
